1/4 Photos of Andrew's Tender Lamb Shanks
3 hrs 15 mins
My husband came up with this recipe and it makes a very tender piece of lamb. It was based on a Gordon Ramsay recipe, but to make Gordon's version you'll want to throw in a carrot and more garlic, leave out the cloves and cook it entirely on the stove top. He also recommends serving it with mashed parsnip but we like traditional potatoes.
